Summary: After stealing a gold cat statue, CATWOMAN manages to escape BATMAN's pursuit only to find the Penguin waiting for her in her apartment. The Penguin asks her to kidnap the Ventriloquist's prized puppet, Scarface, so he can hold it hostage so the Ventriloquist's gang will stop stealing the Penguin's profits. Catwoman flawlessly pulls off the caper only to discover that the Ventriloquist has decided to wage war on the Penguin's forces in retaliation--and neither ultra-violent villain is willing to back down! Not wanting blood on her hands, Catwoman decides to team-up with Batman to set things right-but even with the Dark Knight's assistance, the odds are severely stacked against them.

My thoughts

After Catwoman steals a golden cat statue, her and Batman end up joining forces to stop Scarface and Penguin from their evil deeds.

I really enjoyed the adventure in this comic chapter book.  It was fun and the artwork in the book is beautiful.  Seeing them work together against two of my favorite villains was really cool.  I also liked the "visual questions" that were in the back of the book and find them to be a useful tool when reading these with children.  Great job!!
